Bruce Boudreau has been behind Washington's bench since 2007. With four seasons under his belt, Boudreau has finished in first place in the Souteast Conference every single season.
Boudreau has great success in the regular season. So why would there need to be a change?
Boudreau, and his team, simply do not win in the postseason. In 2008, he was beat in seven games by the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round. The next season, he made it to round two, but he fell in seven games to the Pittsburgh Penguins. In the first round of the 2010 playoffs, the Montreal Canadiens beat Boudreau in seven games. This season, he and his team were swept by Tampa Bay in the second round.
Washington fans might love Boudreau in the regular season, but it can get very irritating supporting a team that dominates in the season but then flops in the playoffs.
How much longer will the Capitals' front office put up with Boudreau and his continuous postseason disappointments.
